I don't wonder about John meeting Yoko as much as I wonder about what would have happened had John made it to the recording of "Venus and Mars" by Wings in 1975. At the time Paul and John were on good terms from what I understand, and John was to fly to New Orleans but never made it.  I think I remember hearing or reading that Yoko said she had "found a cure" to John's smoking problem and he was to come back to New York immediately (of course, right before John was to reunite with Paul in a way).  And so ended the lost weekend…

You've pegged what is perhaps the best 'what if' question of all post-Beatle history. Of all the things I dislike about Yoko – this is the real one – because it really happened and it was deliberate – she kept John from Paul in 1975.

^Couldn't agree more. Very angering, and of course she did it on purpose. Every time my feelings toward her mellow and I think "well, he really did love her, so maybe I should give it a break," I remember some instance like that (and there are others) where she deliberately played on his emotional insecurities and manipulated him for *her* own ends, without his best interests in mind.  And then when she feigns hurt at any suggestions that she broke up the Beatles or kept Paul and John from reconciling, it makes me get that much more pissed offblue-meanie

Didn't know that about Venus and Mars. 

 

On a lighter note, I think Yoko and Ringo would have made a cute couple…

Then, just like people call power couples one name by fusing their names ("Brangelina" for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie), they could call them "Yogo" -- or "Rinko".blue-meanie

There are stories that in the beginning Yoko had eyes for Paul so maybe it was all down to an uncontrollable desire on Yoko's part; the meer mention of Paul and Yoko became a quivering wreck of longing and passionate desire. Unable for it to be acted upon she lashed out in moments of jealous rage -barring phoning calls, calling Japanese airports, getting John to come back the day before he goes to meet Paul.

A woman scorned…  

One christmas Paul and Linda called at the Dokata and they all had a fun evening. The next day Paul and Linda turned up and John turned them away. Yoko's passion reawakened?

 

Also Paul married Linda and then just 8 days later Yoko married John….

If those 2 would have had kids, that would've been some ugly ass kids, lol!

 

If John never met Yoko we probably wouldn't have had the song ''Hey Jude'', since John and Cynthia probably wouldn't have split up back then. Maybe we would've had it later though.

 

I didn't know that about Yoko and Paul! Never read that anywhere (but hey, I hardly ever read anything on either of them so that might explain it). That's kind of interesting and..weird. Not too be harsh or anything but can you imagine Paul with Yoko?

Well, Paul did rub noses with an Eskimo woman once…
